Jay Z launches Tidal

Well, it's official!

Today, some of the biggest titans of the music industry have been gathered by Jay Z to celebrate the re-launch of Tidal — the streaming service that's supposed to change the way we listen to music!!

The 45-year-old rapper assembled quite the squad to commandeer the event: Beyoncé, Kanye West, Madonna, Rihanna, and Nicki Minaj were all present.

But it didn't stop there! Alicia Keys, Usher, J. Cole, Jack White, Arcade Fire, and Daft Punk were some of the other artists present for the launch to sign a declaration.

Tidal will offer CD-quality audio and video but uses no free ad-supported service. The streaming service will offer monthly subscriptions — $19.95 for high quality streaming and $9.95 for standard quality.

The service has deals with all of the major record labels. And Mr. Carter has already coaxed artists to sign over their songs, even the anti-Spotify Taylor Swift!

Jack White Is A BIG Elvis Presley Fan! Bought The King’s First Recordings In An Auction For A Cool $300,000!

| Filed under: Music MinuteJack WhiteBusiness Blitz

no title

Well, it's one for the money! Three for the auction!

Three hundred thousand to be exact!

Jack White was the one who bought the unreleased first recordings from the King himself — Elvis Presley!

And he was able to win by bidding a whopping $300,000! And Jack is NOT being greedy with his new purchase! In fact it's quite the opposite!

The hard rocker bid and won the recordings — which include an 18-year-old Elvis doing covers of That's When Your Heartaches Begin and My Happiness on 78 rpm acetate from 1953 — at an auction that took place at the Graceland Mansion this past January 8th.

And Jack White is planning to release them on vinyl through his label Third Man Records really soon!

jack white slams rolling stone magazine kanye west rant

Jack White is a rebel with a cause!

The rocker was playing Fenway Park on Wednesday when he took a minute to speak to his audience, joking about how, unlike the Foo Fighters, he wouldn't be using a backup guitar player to cover up his mistakes.

He followed that comment by teasing that the Dave Grohl diss was just to help feed RollingStone.com.

After bashing the mag for its covers, its coverage of Kim Kardashian and Taylor Swift, and its "clickbait" articles, he attacked the media coverage of Kanye West, saying:

The duo performed together singing Pay No Mind, Loser, and Where It's At and it looked like it was AWESOME!
